The information here is of importance to just about everyone on the planet—for the findings of global warming science and technology should dictate the choices we make today to secure our common future. This encyclopedia will prove useful for many different types of professionals, inasmuch as global warming science informs public policy debates, applied science, and technology in such fields as energy generation, architecture, engineering, and agriculture.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Johansen, a faculty member of the University of Nebraska, has authored 26 books, including Global Warming in the 21st Century, which received the 2007 Choice Award for Outstanding Academic Title. In his new effort, Johansen skillfully examines the tremendous impact that climate change has had on the shape of our lives. The 300-plus entries span two volumes and are arranged alphabetically, with a topical guide and a detailed index. The 100-page bibliography at the end of the second volume is impressive. The subject entries are carefully chosen to reveal the multidisciplinary nature of climate change and include wide-ranging discussions including aerosols, asthma, dengue fever, and poverty. The reader often associates the Arctic with climate change, but Johansen includes examples from Africa, Asia, and Europe to demonstrate that all nations are impacted by global warming. The one- to five-page entries are well written and easy-to-understand, clearly identifing the major gurus in the field and following both the scientific and the popular debate since the 1980s. Each is accompanied by an up-to-date reading list that includes scholarly works, government reports, and web sites. The few illustrations are well chosen but unfortunately in black-and-white and lack contrast. BOTTOM LINE This would be of great value to high school, public, and university libraries. It is probably the only reference book to date that focuses on science and technology rather than on public policy.—Hazel Cameron, Overlake Hosp. Medical Ctr., Bellevue, WA
